I have a very similar problem to this person, (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic160500.html) except I am running Windows XP home edition.
I downloaded a file I presumed would be safe, scanned it with Mcafee before opening it and unwittingly installed Total Secure 2009.
My computer then froze up so I had to restart. On restart, I managed to scan using Mcafee and Ad-aware, Mcafee found RemAdm-Generic (C:\windows\system32\LMInit.dll), Ad-aware found a few PuP's I removed.
I then restarted again, and a new account had been created "Admin" and I couldn't open the task manager on other accounts.
I tried to run MBAM, but after 3-4ish minutes the computer logged me out, then froze on the login screen.
Anyone help out? I don't like having to restart every 3-4 minutes :thumbsup:

First:

Download ESET SysInspector
http://www.eset.com/download/sysinspector.php

- Start program through the SysInspector.exe
The program will collect information about the situation on your machine.
- When "inspector" is ready and log file - generated, select File> Save Log
- Confirm their wish

Choose to save the file somewhere and then upload on http://4storing.com/ (when you open the page, click on the Great Britain flag to open the page in English), then give me the link.

The computer has frozen before i was able to run the program (i downloaded it from a seperate computer and ran it from a memory stick)
EDIT- I have begun it, but it has stayed at the same point for a long time. I'm not sure my computer has fully frozen yet

Then try the following:

Download Microsoft AutoRuns
http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/Autoruns.zip

Unzip AutoRuns in its own folder and run exe file name autoruns

- Select "Options". Make sure the "Hide Microsoft Entries" the check.
- Select File -> Refresh
- Select File -> Export as

Choose to save the file somewhere and then locate and open it. Copy the content and paste it into your next comment here at the forum.
